15th – 17th January 2018“Heritage is of increasing significance to each society. Why this is so is not entirely clear but probably it has to do with the increasing speed of modernization and the scale of change in society. In such circumstances, evidence of past societies can provide a sense of belonging and security to modern societies and be an anchor in a rapidly changing world…Understanding the past can also be of great help for managing the problems of the present and the future” (UNESCO, 2013). As the current ‘Smart City’ plans have resulted in many new developments in different facets of living like mobility, security, management, energy, health, etc. In retrospect, the heritage of the city remains ‘protected’ from change and invariably becomes static. Many fail to realize that Heritage by nature is a dynamic concept that includes not only the building but also emotions, history, stories, traditions, economies and social functioning. Hence if the city is on a path to becoming ‘Smart’ heritage too should redefine in order to “help manage the problems of the present and the future”.
BACKGROUNDThe first step was taken in 2014, during a joint meeting at the International Biennial of Art and Heritage Management (AR&PA) in Valladolid, Spain about ‘India-Spain Co-operation in the field of Heritage Conservation and Management’. It was then the committee of the roundtable conference coined the term ‘Smart Heritage’. During the conference, INTACH suggested initiating a programme wherein a group of heritage experts, with diverse approaches, would debate about challenges faced by heritage and the acts of heritage preservation and promotion in the wake of changing global scenarios, specifically in the case of ‘Smart’ cities. The idea was born out of an objective to transform these debates into a collection of ‘essential lessons’ to deliberate on “smart heritage in smart cities”.
AIMThe general aim is to organize a three-day workshop to understand and develop broadly the concept of ‘Smart Heritage’; analyze the meaning of ‘Smart Heritage within a Smart City’ and prepare a methodology for its application within the management of a ‘Smart City’.
OBJECTIVEThe operational objective is to create awareness and initiate a dialogue around the concept of “Smart Heritage” in Smart City. The workshop will also endeavor to make ideas like community participation, e-governance, and new operational technologies popular. The workshop will also try to engage the participants to provide solutions and devise methods to make heritage ‘smart’.
Upon completion of this course the participants should be able to:
- Understand the concept of Smart Heritage
- Apply the concept in to produce a dossier of recommendations of the lessons learned in order to be transferable to other Smart Cities in India.
- Recognize the aspects of a Smart Heritage within a Smart City
- Critically analyze the historical assets in cities as well as finding practical solutions to bridge the gap between heritage and urban development.

The practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.
Many unprotected heritage sites are still in use, and the manner in which they continue to be kept in use represents the ‘living’ heritage of India. This heritage is manifest in both tangible and intangible forms, and in its diversity defines the composite culture of the country. Conserving the ‘living’ heritage, therefore, offers the potential to conserve both traditional buildings and traditional ways of building.
(INTACH Charter, 2004)
AIM A broad aim of the 3-day course is to create an understanding of the concept of ‘Living Heritage’ and assess values associated with it and explore its application for the conservation of cultural heritage. OBJECTIVE This 3-day course is designed to explore the concept of ‘Living Heritage’ through interactive sessions on intangible heritage and traditional crafts. The course will attempt to shape an understanding in the various activities that crafts-people have been carrying out since a long time – what motivates them, how is the tradition passed on and how is this documented? In addition to this, we will delve into the aspects like types of ‘living’ heritage, conserving living architectural heritage and methods of documenting living heritage. LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon completion of this course the participants will:
- gain an understanding of the concept of ‘living heritage’
- gain an understanding of the relation between ‘living’, intangible and tangible heritage
- get introduced to the methods of document ‘living heritage’
- develop earning the different types of ‘living heritage’ in the Indian context
- be able to determine the approaches to its conservation and management
